Taking the time to post these type of insights is greatly appreciated.
I'm hoping you, or possibly you can find someone to add some insight to another aspect of these latest upgrades in regards to the format of exported MLS CSV files. For many years they have stayed the same.
Starting with MLS version 3.1.0 , the format of the exported CSV files significantly changed, and has changed several times more up to and with version 3.1.2 . Several 3rd party tools, used by ward leaders, use these exported files to create very useful ward reference information that can be quickly accessed without having to visit the clerks office to access MLS.
So changes to the format of the exported CSV files from MLS is very disruptive to leaders (Bishoprics) using these tools because the tools break every time the format of the CSV files change.
So the main question is,
Will these changes to the exported CSV files keep happening regularly now and if so what are the possibilities of creating a way for advanced notification for changes to the formatting of the exported CSV files so developers of these tools used by leaders can keep up with the changes in a more timely manner?:D
Thanks in advance.
